Ebuild www-misc/zoneminder-1.24.2 requires a tweak to build.

Code:
export CXXFLAGS="D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS"
emerge zoneminder
unset CXXFLAGS

I think this should be something the ebuild should handle for us...
Let me see if I can come up with an idea that does it.

Noooooo - somebody, rather than simply fixing the ebuild, has decided to schedule remove the ebuild from portage!

Aaarrrrgggg!

I was only trying to help other people build this package, not have it removed - it's an awesome Webcam/IP camera monitoring tool, great for home security.

should be able to snag the ebuild from bugzilla

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=281198

toss 'er in a local overlay, and away you go

unmaintained since August 2009, and no functional ebuild, does unfortunately tend to get things nuked from portage

All we need to do is fix the ebuild - I am not an expert in this area.

The app, whilst not having been 'maintained', works perfectly well.

I can understand some app that doesn't work being nuked but a perfectly working one is not doing gentoo a service.

Just my thoughts.

yeah no, fair enough, i do get that
just sayin', it doesn't build, hasn't built for a good year or better, and has no maintainer
at what point do you yoink it out of portage, yanno? This is going to be a neverending cat and mouse game. The toolchain is going to keep moving forward, meanwhile, this isn't getting any updates, hasn't been touched by the author since June 2009, it looks like it's not only abandoned by the local maintainer, but by the upstream maintainer as well. New things are going to keep being added, that are going to continue breaking this package, lord only knows what vulns exist in this package now - and neither the author nor maintainers are around to take care of it. It's an annoying situation, but *something* has to be done - cant be hard-masked for ever, cant stay in portage unmaintainend forever.

by the by, I just synced and:

Code:

* www-misc/zoneminder
     Available versions:  [M](~)1.23.3[1] [M](~)1.24.2 [M](~)1.24.2[1] {debug ffmpeg}
     Homepage:            http://www.zoneminder.com/
     Description:         ZoneMinder allows you to capture, analyse, record and monitor any cameras attached to your system.


it just looks to be hard-masked, not removed from portage (yet!) - nothing package.unmask can't sort

Code:

# Samuli Suominen <ssuominen@gentoo.org> (20 Mar 2011)
# Masked for QA
# Fails to build in various ways, see tracker bug 359605.
# Removal in 30 days
www-misc/zoneminder
media-plugins/mythzoneminder


Like I said, it needs a maintainer. It can't stay hard-masked in portage forever, and as long as it doesn't build, hasnt built for ages, the prospects look fairly grim. Basically, snag the ebuild while you can, because ol' gal is running out of time.
(NB: am not a dev, don't know the formal policy there, but I would err on the side of caution)

For what it's worth, here's an updated ebuild that should do the trick:

Code:

# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/www-misc/zoneminder/zoneminder-1.24.2.ebuild,v 1.4 2011/02/27 20:09:33 ssuominen Exp $

Hopefully that's at least a consolation prize? Or something?

NOTE: for me, this successfully compiled. It failed to install, because I didn't want it to install; I commented out the sections that would have pulled in apache/php, as this is my desktop and I'd rather not spend all night unmerging deps, so when it tried to chown things to apache:apache, it obviously failed, as this user/group do not exist on my system. I of course uncommented those sections above so that you can copy and paste.

There were two key pieces to get this to work.
First, on the inherit line at the top, you have to add
Code:

flag-o-matic


to include that eclass, or else the following line will just sorta be ignored, and it'll still fail to build
Code:

append-flags "-D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS"

who knows, maybe some bored soul on the CC list picks it up - fingers crossed

Better go searching around for other bugs against the same package...

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=359605

This is the one that results in removal... :-/

yeah, i found that one
posted to the other bug because the other bug was w.r.t. the CXXFLAGS change.

by all means plead the case (e.g. "hey, not yet, an updated ebuild has been provided!"), I have zero attachment to or involvement with any of the development processes. I trawl the forums for spammers and flamewars, that's about it.

Hmm..that ebuild still needs to be tidied up a bit.
Mainly this, which is just wrong

Code:

    for DIR in events images sound; do
        dodir "${ROOT}"/var/www/zoneminder/htdocs/${DIR}
    done


never dodir from ${ROOT} - such is a crude hack (albeit a functional one). This really needs to go like so: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/webapps/webapp-eclass.xml

Actually otherwise I suppose the ebuild is fine. I bring this up because anything we can do to get the ebuild to be syntactically correct would only improve its chances of not being dropped (even if by a small margin).
If upstream said they/he/she still intended to maintain the software, that would help as well. But the big thing, needs a maintainer, OR, someone to add it to their overlay.

NB: did the ebuild i posted/attachedtobug work for you? like i said, I'm unable to test as I don't have apache here. Time permitting I'll see if I can fix up that screwy dodir block above, but no promises there.

I have never done an ebuild that has made it to the tree.
I might have a crack at updating it and finding out how to post updates/new ebuilds today.

A revised ebuild has been posted to the bug, plus a link to that bug has been added to two other bugs.

In particular, the ebuild can be found in https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=359605

Bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357029 has been updated to reference the above bug

The way I see it, this should close all bugs against zone minder, as they are all basically the same 2 areas.

  • parallel build - zoneminder wont build with more than -j1
  • the __STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS causing compile failures

A style change has also been included.
  • usage of ${ROOT} in the install area

Found a little ZoneMinder Problem with 2.6.38 kernel-headers:

Code:
checking linux/videodev.h presence... no
checking for linux/videodev.h... no
configure: error: zm requires Video4Linux to be installed


I guess ZoneMinder is pretty dead - but I'd be happy if I am wrong.

Well, the issue with the 2.6.38 kernel headers is not a problem at this point, the linux-headers-2.6.38 are not even in portage.

I will cross that bridge, when they arrive :-)

I may also have a look at applying those 8 lines of patches, if someone thinks they are important enough.

They are already in ~arch since almost week ago.

To make it more interesting, I sneaked around in the ZM forums. There is a preview release of the next release around: 1.24.3

The Tarball ist hosted on www2 instead of www - and you need to remove the patches from the ebuild and use g-cpan to build sys::mmap.

They seem to have fixed a lot - sadly it didn't work in our sandbox due to an access violation. But so far things are working.

linux-headers : doh!

Still, stopping zoneminder from being deleted is the first step, addressing 2.6.38 and the new release can follow.

:-)

you will likely have better luck getting it added to an overlay than getting it kept in portage

I have found http://overlays.gentoo.org/ and the 'security' overlay appears to be the most appropriate but that doesn't seem to be any more active than zoneminder itself.

Worst case is me providing an overlay.

Update:
Okay folks - if needed, I got my group's repository opened so we can still offer Zoneminder
just add "http://www.stargazer.at/layman.txt" to the overlays in the layman config.

Patches/Ebuilds should go to portage AT same domain as URL above. Bugtracker is about to be done.

Code:

ACCESS DENIED  mkdir:        /var/run/zm


are you running emerge as root, or as your normal user?

NB: something about the way that dodir has been done looks very wrong. Can't place it offhand, don't have the time to look into it in great detail. But trying to operate directly on / with dodir seems wrong.

As root. The dodir is something that I added, hopping that it'll resolved my problem, but it didn't. The message is exactly the same with or without the dodir.

The complete ebuild, without the dodir : zoneminder-1.24.3.ebuild
Here is the complete build process, without the dodir : emerge logs
and here are other infos (emerge --info): emerge info

Any one having success with 1.24.3? If the error is just to make a dir, why not just add it before emerging? Anyone using Zoneminder and eyeZM knows this latest version saves lots of time. I will try it this week and report back....
